In dedication to my Bro, Rao.

Reached out to him for help.

He came back with so many that I have still stuck at the first one.

It makes the heart happy that smart and very rich men and women leave everything they are doing to come see about you and your care and worries.

Rao, Bro, I owe you a reply; please give me a bit of time to sort through everything you are trying to give me.

Grace, family.

Always walking and working through someone else shoes.

I owe you pair a of shoes, but I couldn’t afford the brands you wear.
